The man behind the upcoming Castlevania anime is working with Ubisoft on an Assassin's Creed anime series.

Producer Adi Shankar, known for his work on Dredd, Machine Gun Preacher, and The Grey, announced the upcoming series on Facebook.

"I played the first edition of Assassin's Creed the year I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my dream," he wrote.

"At that moment I knew absolutely no one in the industry and could never have imagined that one day Ubisoft would ask me to take the world of Assassin's Creed and create an original story set in it as an anime series.

"If anyone tells you not to follow your passion in life they are wrong."

Shankar's Castlevania series was announced back in February and debuts on Netflix tomorrow.

The show's cast includes The Hobbit's Richard Armitage and Graham McTavish as Trevor Belmont and Dracula respectively, Battlestar Galactica's James Callis as Alucard, and Supernatural's Emily Swallow as Dracula's wife Lisa.
